add a tracklight to switch ?

ok heres the senerio. the wall switch just controlls 1 outlet in the room. i would like to install a tracklight which would be located on the cieling right above the switch. the switch just has a black wire and a white wire coming from the top of wall and conecting into the switch and thats it. now would i be able to take the feed that goes to the switch and feed it to the tracklight and then run it to the switch?

If you reconfigure the wiring in the outlet so the outlet is not switched you can do it. Without new wiring you can't use the switch for both the outlet and the new light.
